Peacekeepers NW (PKNW) is an association of providers of pastoral care endorsed by faith groups to serve all persons in physical, mental, spiritual, or social need in diverse settings. The purpose of PKNW is to provide excellence in pastoral care and counseling through the association's various programs and activities and to promote public support for skilled spiritual care. The goal of PKNW is to integrate professional pastoral and skilled spiritual care into the total care provided to persons in diverse settings. We seek to achieve our goal in partnership with other organizations that share our mission.
In promoting the mission of the PKNW, certain principles and values under gird all organizational efforts. The association sets forth this code to inform its members and those with whom they work of those principles and values and the expectations for ethical behavior they require. This code does not undertake to define standards of professional conduct of members for purposes of civil liability. In becoming a member of the association, one affirms this code and holds oneself accountable to it. Membership implies agreement to participate with integrity in any process of the association to hold oneself or other members accountable to this code, and to accept the standards and judgments of the association's general principles and values
The association and its members shall demonstrate commitment to these values in relationships with members, those served, colleagues and through conduct in their professional roles
The individual person possesses dignity and worth.
The spiritual dimension of a person is an essential part of an individual's striving for health, wholeness and meaning in life.
The spiritual nurturing of persons is a critical aspect of the total care offered in the delivery of care for public and private institutions and organizations.
Inclusivity and diversity are foundational values in pastoral services offered to persons and are valued throughout the structures of the association.
